I wanted to do a colorful, geometric pattern. I created the pattern in Adobe Illustrator, and then added another fill appearance of the same pattern with lowered transparency and rotated 180º.
I don’t think I’ll use the appearance palette with patterns because when I made this into a pattern, it rasterized some of the circles and made a mess.
I called this one Calming Circles because the color palette made it seem much calmer than the vibrant primaries of the previous.
And this is an experiment with different color palettes:
I still need to export these and make products from the ones that I like the most. I need to redo them because many of the circles had been rasterized.
